The Kyrgyzstan flag rocks!

Can I just say that Kyrgyzstan national flag rocks? Cuz it does.

In 1991, Kyrgyzstan became the very last of the former Soviet Union republics to secede, and declare independence. That’s ok, Kyrgy. Estonia still loves you.

Its new flag is symbolic of Manas the Noble, a true national hero. He merged together 40 tribes that collectively formed the original Kyrgyz nation. That accomplishment is represented by the red field and the golden sun with 40 rays. Centered within that sun is a symbolic Kyrgyz yurt, the traditional home of it nomadic peoples.

Below is a statue of Manas the Noble. Nice sword, Manny.

She did solve the puzzle but it was arranged so that she was the only one working on it. I think the producers told her it was just additional footage they wanted to shoot for the show in case they needed it. I don’t think they aired it on tv, but my friend got a copy of the footage they shot for the proposal puzzle. He brought in the tape once and I saw it. He was told it was the first time anybody had ever requested to do that on Wheel of Fortune. The last time I heard, and… Read more »
